Ogier has been named in the annual GRR 100 as a leading adviser on cross-border restructurings and insolvencies.
As the global requirement for expertise on increasingly complex restructuring matters increases, the firm's global Restructuring and Corporate Recovery team is well positioned to meet market need by drawing on the creativity, knowledge and experience of the entire firm across multiple disciplines to provide responsive and commercial solutions for clients in all Ogier's jurisdictions.
Restructuring and Insolvency specialist Marc Kish heads the global Restructuring and Corporate Recovery team. He said: "Our expertise extends to all aspects of restructurings from consensual workouts to contentious schemes of arrangement. The close working relationship between our contentious and non-contentious teams across all of our jurisdictions means we are ideally placed to advise in the most difficult and unpredictable of distressed situations.
"We have been instructed on some of the largest and most important matters in our jurisdictions, including the first ever 'soft touch' provisional liquidation in the BVI, the Cayman-centred Abraaj private equity group, the award-winning restructuring of Ocean Rig, the first and largest restructuring of its kind, and the restructuring of PizzaExpress Group."
As a leading offshore law firm, Ogier maintains a close working relationship with the regulators in the BVI, Cayman, Guernsey, Jersey and Luxembourg and the team includes partners who worked through the 2008 financial crisis and who drove the restructuring and insolvency work that flowed from it.
"This continued recognition by the Global Restructuring Review confirms that Ogier's large, experienced and multi-jurisdictional team has the experience and capacity to react swiftly in challenging times and take on the most demanding and complex cross-border matters," said Marc.
